Children are welcome to join their friends this summer for lots of fun and excitement at one of three day-camp locations offered by Fort Bliss School-Age Services!
SAS will offer full-day, structured and supervised activities during the SISD, YISD and EPISD summer break, which runs June 3 through August 23. Enrollment is open to all CYSS-registered children currently completing first through fifth grades in the 2012-13 school year.
The fun begins daily at 8 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m., with extended care hours from 5:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. All three sites – Bliss School-Age Center, Logan SAC, and Milam SAC - will offer field trips, tours, bowling, roller-skating, computers, matinees, math and science exploration, physical fitness, cooking and craft projects, swimming, picnics, and a variety of sports and 4-H projects. During the week of June 3, SAS will host SISD campers at the Milam School-Age Center and Milam Youth Activity Center only.
Fees are based upon total family income and can range from $44 to $140 a week. Ask about a 15 percent multiple-child discount for siblings in regular care at either CDC or SAS programs, or with a Family Child Care provider.
Children must be registered with Child, Youth and School Services through the Parent Central Service office prior to attending a day camp. A program orientation at the site the child will attend is also required no less than 24 hours prior to attending. Important information, permission processes and frequently asked questions are covered. Spaces are limited and advance payments are required. To make an appointment to register, call Parent Central Services at (915) 568-4374. Walk-ins are accepted at Parent Central, located at 1743 Victory Road.
Registration requirements include the child’s shot records and physical forms, child’s birth certificate, sponsor’s military ID and most recent leave and earnings statement or pay stub for each adult in the home.
